Cal it a late Christmas present, an early Valentine's Day gift or whatever the heck you please.

But The CW has renewed five dramas for next season!

Those now guaranteed to return on the 2014-2015 schedule are:

  • Reign
  • Arrow

“This season we’ve had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years,” said CW prez Mark Pedowitz in a statement.

“The Vampire Diaries is No. 2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I’m very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season.”

Does this mean it's curtains for The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie, The Tomorrow People and Beauty and the Beast?

Not necessarily. But we'll need to wait until Upfronts in May for news on those dramas.

@ Anon & Frances: Yes they are taking a lot of creative liberties with Reign but other shows do it as well. The thing is people doesn't know about medical, investigative or other stuff so they don't neg about it that much. I agree that it did very well for it's standards but bad marketing is better than good. People were all about trashing the show so people checked in and realized it's a good drama. I think they are sticking as close to the story as possible and keep the level of entertainment well enough.


Almost all my favorites are renewed Reign, The vampire Dairies, The Originals, and Arrow the only other one we need is The Tomorrow people and then I'll be even more excited. I'm so glad they renewed all those shows they're all so good. I really hope The Tomorrow People gets renewed because it's such a good show and I'd hate to see it only have one season when it has the potential to be amazing and have many seasons.


Best news ever !!!!
The Vampire Diaries season 6
The Originals season 2


I want to backhand the heads of these Hart of Dixie writers. What bloody show is this? It started with such a great idea... a Doctor who moves to a small town... falls for the simple country guy whose rough around the edges but is (WAS) a good guy... and all the drama that's in this little place. The actors have sex appeal, chemistry, are entertaining. Then they decide NO! let's see how far we can push the majority of the viewers before they fall asleep during episodes or forget our show all together! These writers are terrible and not just terrible because they ruined what was initially great about the show by altering it so dramatically but boring terrible in that they axed what was good and now, they can't come up with anything new that's on the same level as what they initially had. The show was ruined by whoever decided that it would no longer include difficult life situations... that it would become purely this cheese-fest of musicals, comedic characters, and unrelatable fluffy storylines. They stopped the lead from actually being a Doctor. They then pulled apart the two characters that were full of on-screen chemistry and gave into the "if we keep them apart for a season, we'll continue to have people watching until they get back together" crap. I initially loved the show. I loved where the show was going but whoever is in charge of the big decisions needs help... and new writers with new ideas need to be hired (ideas that solely don't consist of characters eventually coupling up with every other character on the show!). Ugh.

@ Sam

Agreed. I loved the first 2 seasons. I stopped watching because I can't stand Zoe's boyfriend. Plus the writing seems to have gone out the window. Yeah it never had fantastic writing but it's like a chick lit aren't reading for deep understanding of anything! It's supposed to be lighthearted and fun with occasional serious moments. Now it's so boring that I've actually fallen asleep watching.


YAY!! I'm super stoked about this!! Yay Reign!!! Also Yay the Originals!!!! Made my day. Thanks for the news!!

@ Tess

ME too! I haven't watched Reign yet but have all the episodes stacked up on the DVR for summer watching when I only have a few shows that air. But The Originals news just made this a fantastic freaking day.


I really hope The Tomorrow People really get renew. Its way better then reign and it just got interesting!! Please can it get a renewed. hart of Dixie needs to go like come on. How many stories can a city of blue bell go through.

@ YueCoolJ

Hart of dixie will probably be renewed because of synidaction, they will probably give it as many episodes as it needs but announce its the last season. I completely agree with you about the tomorrow people. I thought cw wanted to get away from a teenage girl audience which is all Reign draws.

@ chris

Wow, i don't understand your spite towards reign. And sorry, but a teenage girl audience is not all reign draws. From this comment it is obvious that you have never seen the show. It has gotten very dark, with pagans, rituals, sacrifices and so on. A show that only draws teenage girls is the Carrie diaries or hart of dixie. I don't know why despite how dark reign is, it is always picked on as the barbie show, when the carrie diaries has no blood or violence whatsoever. Reign has lots.

@ chris

I agree. Tomorrow People is such a good show. It would be a shame to not renew it. Reign isn't a bad show and it has some good episodes, but of all the CW shows, it probably is the one most geared to teenage girls.

@ Frances

Have to agree with Blackbelt. Carrie Diaries is the most geared towards teenagers. And Hart of Dixie might be second but I think TVD might be in there somewhere... I do think that Reign was aimed towards teenage girls almost as much as CD though based on the advertising they did. But it sounds like it has as much or more violence than TVD. (Don't know, it's stacking up on my Tivo for summer binge watching)

@ Frances

Of all the shows, reign is the one most geared towards teenage girls? really? Never mind the blood, gore, politics, pagans or ritualistic sacrifices the show has to offer, never mind that. Reign is the girliest show on the CW, not the Carrie diaries or Hart of dixie (sarcasm).


All of my favorite CW shows got renewed so I'm so happy and don't care about the rest. The Originals and Reign are such amazing first year shows and I can't wait for their second seasons!
